SystemsGo, the Fredericksburg-based nonprofit organization that created the educational rocket program now used in about 50 high schools in Texas, has announced launch dates for 2012.
For the first time in five years of bringing students together for the launch, SystemsGo will conduct launches at two sites - one near Fredericksburg; the other near Houston.
The launch dates are:
Fredericksburg (Open to the public - no charge)
Launches: Thursday, May 3 – Sunday, May 6, 2012
LINK TO LIVE STREAMING! 9-4 Daily 9 (we hope!)
Houston Area/Lake Jackson (Closed to public; Open to students/staff only)
Launches: Saturday, May 12 – Sunday, May 13, 2012
Students will launch about 75 large rockets they have designed and built in their high school classrooms over the course of the school year. The Fredericksburg launch is free and open to the public.
The goal of the program is to promote engineering studies and research, develop work force skills, and encourage students to enter academic and career paths in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields that lead to careers in the engineering industries.
SystemsGo is endorsed by NASA and certified by The Space Foundation.
